Founded 1863. Incokporatbd 1893. 


Vol. XXXIV. 






Edited by J. W. CLAY, F.S.A., 

Member of the Council of the Yorkshire Archceological Society, 



Si . 16 1S04 





/^F the many volumes written by Roger Dodsworth, the great 
Yorkshire antiquary, now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, 
Volume 1 60 is one of the most interesting. It consists of notes 
made by him of visits to Yorkshire churches in the years 16 19 to 
1630, with copies of inscriptions on monuments then existing, and 
with notices of the ancient painted glass in the windows. It has 
been freely used by many antiquaries, especially by the Rev. Joseph 
Hunter, F.S.A., in the History of South Yorkshire^ but has not 
hitherto been printed in full. 

Sir William Dugdale, who incorporated the labours of Dodsworth 
in his Monasticon^ seems to have done the same in a volume 
in the College of Arms, which the editor, by the kindness of the 
authorities there, has been allowed to examine. On the outside it 
is labelled Dugdale s Yorkshire Arms, but inside there is this title : 
"INSIGNIUM EPITAPHIORUM, venerandse antiquatis 
INSCRIPTIONUM, TUMULORUMque iconarum aliquot 
in diversis Ecclesiis parochialibus, Nobilium oedibus, aliisque 
locis infra Comitatum EBORACENSEM EXEMPLAR. Liber 
Officii Armorum de dono WILLIELMI DUGDALE NORROY. 
Maledictus sit qui abstulerit." This book seems to be a manu- 
script of Dodsworth's Oxford volume, with some additions of church 
visits of a later date. The arms are beautifully drawn, and not 
described, and there are many illustrations in pen and ink of 
churches and monuments. 

Al one ut the recent salvs of the Phillips Library a manuscript 
volume came into the possession of our president, Sir Thomas 
Brooke, Bart. It is entitled ; " Arms and Monuments in Churches, 
&c., in the West Riding of Vorkshiref copied from Dodsworth's 
original manuscript, in the possession of John Hatfield Kaye, 
esquire, F.S.A., and rivers and places noted by Mr. Dodsworth, 
with additions by Dugdale, Doctor Johnston, of Pontefract, and 
J. H. K." This appears to be a partial copy of the Dugdale 
volume at the College, and has all the arms neatly drawn with 
some of the illustrations. 

Sir Thomas Brooke kindly offered this manuscript to the Yorkshire 
Archaeological Society as a volume to be printed for the Record 
Series, and the editor undertook the task of bringing it out. It was, 
however, found that as it was not a complete copy of Dodsworth's 
volume, only comprising the West Riding, and as the arms were not 
described, it would be best to have a copy made from the original at 
Oxford. Miss A. F. Parker, of that city, has therefore made a full 
manuscript of the Bodleian volume, which is now brought before our 
subscribers. Her task has been a very difficult one, as Dodsworth's 
writing is sometimes very rough and confused, and his copies of 
inscriptions not altogether correct, as may be seen by the monuments 
at present existing — copied by him. Good Latin scholars will doubt- 
less find errors, but it would have been an impossible task to have 
begun altering the text, so that the only course appeared to be to 
make as perfect a copy as possible of the original MS., and for that 
reason the proofs have been carefully re-examined at Oxford. 

It could be wished that Dodsworth had gone through the whole 
of the Yorkshire churches, but we must be thankful that we have an 
account of so many monuments and so much glass, totally destroyed 
since his time, in the many churches he visited. 


It was intended to have had some of the illustrations in 
Sir Thos. Brooke's volume copied, but the funds of the Record Series 
are not in such a favourable condition as to warrant a large 
expenditure. The editor has, however, ventured to insert engravings 
of some of the coats of arms from blocks in his possession, which 
he thought would add a little interest to the heraldry. 

In conclusion, the editor has to thank Messrs. Paley Baildon, 
Wm. Brown, S. J. Chadwick, M. H. Peacock and Mill Stephenson 
for advice, and for looking through many of the proofs.

be some mistake about the above date.

In Halumshire Master of Game, 
Who, of Justice, Truth, Love and Bounty, 

Had alwaies the fame.

Lies here hard by. 
Who languished in sorrow 

By his mistris' cruelty. 
No goddes she was. 

But of like nomination, 
As Prudence to the godesses 

Have application.

Eschew like Fate. Jehova say. Amen. 

Continue your posterity in earth 

And I rest in Heaven.

Mitton haith formerly belonged to Sir Rafc Mitton, knight. It is 
thought that one Bayly of Aghton married one of his heires, whose 
daughter and heire was since married to Sherborne,' who in her right 
are still seized of lordship or mannor of Bayley and Chadgeley. It 
is to be notyd that att the tyme of his marriadge, Sherborne being 
seruant to H. Lacy, Comes Lincoln., was only possest of landes in 
Wiswall and Catforth within the county of Lancaster, and in respect 
he was thought vnworthey to match with the said heire of Ba[^/<?y], 
his lord and master, H. Lacy, gave him the moyety of h[is] lordship 
of Chorley,* and the 4th part of the ma[««^r] of Bolton in the

Marie's Mount, which place by the monkes was in short tyme forsaken,

William Lister, knight, to Elslack, wher long since the family named 
de Altaripa have flourished, wher ther haith beene a parke and castle 

of great antiquity, and by the inhabitantes called Castle. King 

Edward . . . granted licence to Godfrey de Altaripa,* lord therof,

into Ayre, as aforesaid. 

Aire, after many wanton turning[5], commethe to Carlton, a fruit- 
full lordship and parke therunto belonging, and leaveth Skipton 
Castle on the left hand. Keepeth his course by Silsseden, Glusburn, 
and Maulsis and Sutton,* formerly belonging to the family of Denton, 
whose daughter and heire brought [//] as a dower to Copley of Bateley. 
Thence by Ferneley [JFarnAil/], where Altoftes [EUo/ts] dwelleth, to 
Kildwick, where ther is a faire stone bridg. And so to Steeton, by 
Howden Parke to Kighley, a pretty marcat towne, which by a c[tf]heir 
of a family of that name, of great antiquity, is descended to th'Erle 
of Devonshire. Heere she receveth Kighley Beck, which begins nere 
Denholme Parke and Halsted Parke. Thence to Bingley, a lordship

At Bayldon Aire receiveth Broughton Becke, which beginneth 


Aire from thence keepeth on his course, the valley being 
straightned very much by the hills on both sides, leavethe Tonge 
Parke, within the lordship of Bayldoun, but disparked sans memory, 
and a lordship called Idle, on the right hand, the possession [o/] 
Plumptons since the Conquest, till of late itt came by long suyte to 
Suthell and Rocliffe's heyres. Thence to West Esholt, where the 
family of the Wardes a longe tyme had ther habitacion, whose great 
inheritance came in our fathers' dayes, by coheires, to Sir John 
Constable of Holderness, who had Esheholt and Esholt Parke (which 
had deere in man's memory), with the mannor of Guysley adyoining, 
which is now Mr. Sherburne's, by purchase of his father, Sir Richard 
Sherburn, of Stonyhurst in com. Lane. The 2*^ daughter and coheire- 
was married to Sir Edward Musgrave, who had the mannor of 
Givingdale, alias Geendale, nere Rippon. Itt was a goodly mannor, 
saith Mr. Bayldon, and the lordship of Bayldon was held of Sir 
Edward Musgrave and Joan, his wief, with divers other lordships. 
Esholt was the cheif mannor house. Thes Wards are of Otteley 
parish, and builded the South ile of that church, ut traditur. Nere 
adyoining is East Esholt, sometymes a nunry, most neatly seated. 
Mr. Bayldon, 1619 [^ri6o9?], saith that Dame Margret Martiall, some- 
tyme a nun at Esheholt, liv'd att Faweather adyoining, and had a 
pension of 4//. or 5//. a yere during her lief, and dyed some 12 [yeres] 
since, and was a good church woman. 

A myle on the North hand standeth Hawkesworth, wher a famyly 
of that name dwelleth. 

Aire having left Esheholt keepeth on her course by Rawden, on 
the left hand, wher Oglesthorp lately sold a convent house to one 
Layton of Loudon. Itt haith formerly belonged to Bolton Abbey 
and sold by th'Erle of Cumberland to Oglesthorp. On the other 
hand standeth Calverley, the seat of the knightly famyly of the 

Calverleys, who lived in the best rancke till Calverley stayned 

his progeny by: his barbarous cruelty in murdring his owne children, 
&C.,''' out of a desperat humor, after he had greatly entangled and 
consumed his estaite by his riotous courses. He kild 2 children and 
stabb'd his wief, who by reason of ther bodies was saved, and riding

From hence Aire runneth to Horsforth, a straggled towne, spme-

monly cald Barlewick, which the Abbot disliked propter 

incommoditatem cceli et grassatorum, procured this place (being then 
a hermitage) of William Pictavensis, by the mediation of Henry de 

Licy abovesaid, yere after ther [?] foundacion att P>arlewick. 

It was of the Cistertian order. Ther [Ae] had of the said William 
Pictavensis, beside the seat of ther house, foure carucates of land 
adjoyning called Moregrang, Newgrang, Cugric, and West Hedinglay,

out of a devout mynd, gave 60//. to the building of a convenient 
chappell for the ease of the inhabitantes, which charitable worke Sir 
John Savile, lord of the mannor, haith much furthered, by giving 
ground and appointing the worke. 

From Kirkestall Aire cometh to Leedes, by Bede called Leodis.

Mr. Isack, schoolemaster at Wakefeild, 4 January, 1618, 

The free schoole, founded by Queen Elizabeth about the 30. 
regni,' and endowed with landes and houses in [and] about towne ad 
valentiam circiter 50//. per annum, by the benevolence of parishoners. 
Note that the said Queen granted a mortmayne lycence to the 
parishoners to purchase landes to the value of a C marks per annum, 
which is brought already to the value of 50//'. almost, by the care of 
14 governors chosen for that purchase. Georg Sayvill, a Blackwell 
Hall man,* and his sonnes, George, of the Inn of Court, and Thomas, 
2^ Sonne, gave the site therof. The parishoners endowed to the value 
aforesaid. They had a laye amongst them. Georg Savyll, the father, 
gave, besides the syte, 6//. per annum and a legacy of 100//. toward 
the building of the house. 

One John Lowden' of London, obiit in November, 16 18, borne 
about Kendall, gave 100//. to be lent to pore deceased carriers. The 
occasion, as is thought, was : heer being a great trade of Blackwell 

men, iioo*^ a weeke, from Wakefeild, would usually [ ]* the 

carriers of ther usually [sic] price, which they were content with 
because they had so much imployment from him that they durst 
contrad[. . .] so that he paid them at his pleasure, which at [....] 
ende he recompenced in this manner."^ 

Ther were belonging to the church of Wakefeild 24 chantry 
preistes. Each had his lodging in certeyne houses in the North of 
the churchyerd.® 

Att a place in Wakefeild called Northgate Head stood St. John 
Chappell, now translated into a laythe,®on South side wherof ther is 
a hollow place yett extant in the wall wher [an] anchoret lived.

married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Robert 
Nevile, of Liversedge, and died 12 April,

Mortalls that live must dye, and att death's call, 

Into our earthen house resorte we all : 

From his rough summons therms none can be free, 

What age, degree, or sex soe ere they bee. 

Wittnes Anne Lewyns, whose untymely fate 

Card her awaye, before her nature's date, 

When she was freshe and grene in strength of tyme, 

When age and Nature tearm'de her in her prime. 

But ah ! this fairest rose so lyvely younge. 
Pale gardner Deathe crops ere itt be well sprung : 
And yet this flower earth's garden did adorne, 
More faire then rising sonne doth cloudles morne. 
Whose colours were faire vertues trymlye dight, 
Eye-pleasing vertues to the envious sight : 
As blushing modesty, the mayden's crowne. 
Obsequious love, in married rarer found. 

Duety to parents, to all charity. 

Affable wisdome joyn'd to gravity. 

The sents this flowre expir'd were wondrous swete, 

And sente from Heaven, for Heaven alone were mete. 

Piety to all and pittye to the poore, 

Zeale unto God, to her last fading houre. 

Her wedlock knott love ty'de, nor was itt broke. 

But cutt asunder by death's heavy stroke. 

In all to all so pleasing was her havioure, 
The world admir'd a floure of such a savoure, 
But now this world is rob'd of this faire flower, 
Which Death haith snatcht to decke his sable bower. 
With itt he pluck't a budd, which hardly grewe. 
But 't seem'd, 'twas borne to bidd the world adew; 
This flowre so wondrous sweete we all may misse, 
For in our garden grewe no more like this. 

Which Heaven nowe holds though the roote rest in clay, 
Till th'appy unyon att the Judgment Day. 

Moriar ne moriar : 
Mors Christi, vita mihi.

* The Bradfords were an important 
family who owned Heath Hall in Warm- 
field, near Wakefield. There was a 
younger branch at Stanley near the same 
place. There is a pedigree in Glover's 
Visitation^ Foster's Ed., p. 326. There 
are several wills at York, some of which 
are copied in Test. Ebor,^ iv, 108. In 
1474 William Bradford leaves out of his 
lands a chaplain to be found for seven 
years, three of which .nre to be at Warm- 
field, and four in the chapel of the Holy 
Trinity and St. Sitha near Ivybridge in 
Bradford. He also mentions lands in 
Bradford. There is no notice of any of 
the family living here but Beatrix, 

daughter of John Bradford, of Heath, who 
married Nicholas, a younger son of Sir 
Richard Tempest, of Boiling, and so her 
arms were associated with those of 
Tempest. Dodsworth calls the head a 
lion's, but it is mostly described as a 

3 James, in his History of Bradfordy 
calls these the Badlesmere arms ; if so 
they are generally described arg. a fess

this family had with Bradford does not

In daies most dangerous assigned he was thoo. 
A mightie man he was, in welth he did abound, 

Of all his howse therin the like was never found. 
He fast was to his frend, and heavie to his foe. 

He lived soe direct that none could worke him woe. 
The poore mann's plainte to heare, his eares would alwaies bend, 

And them in there cause against there foes defend. 
Five hundred pound he gave for ever to remaine 

To Chesterfeld to helpe poore tradesmen without gaine. 
Of courage he was stoote, no injurie would beare. 

No subject in this land in whome he stood in feare.

Great thinges whearof by lordes thrice tenne and six of name 

Shee tainted was at last and suffred for the same. 
Soe great a trust as this so longe was never scene, 

A subject for to be a keeper of a queene. 
To scape out of his handes by divers waies she sought, 

But still he did prevent the waie that she had wrought. 
For wisely he did see what perill might have beene, 

If shee had scapt awaie, to realme or eke to queene. 
Wherfore he shewed himself most carefull for to bee 

Soe great a chardge to keepe with all fidelitie. 
Whereby he hath preserved his name of soe great renowne 

The Talbot ever trew and faithfuU to the Crowne. 
But yett for all his wealth, his honour and his fame, 

Loe where he lies in earth from whence at first he came. 
For each thinge bearinge life in tyme it shall decey. 

And nothinge soe sure as death, uncertaine is the daie. 
He spareth noe degree, but with his sythe in hand 

He mowes downe all like grasse his force none can withstand. 
Such as applye themselves uprightly for to live, 

When they yeild upp there breath, it never doth them greive. 
But such as have no care of baile, nor blisse at all. 

They never have regard what thinges on them befall. 
Such men live in this world as though they should not dye, 

And as the dredfull hell was nought els but a lye. 
But sure the daie will come when each accompt must yeild 

Before the fearfull judge when noe man shall them sheild. 
Wherfore while time there is, let us for mercye crave. 

That after wee goe hence a blessed place maie have. 
In peace, yow worthie wight, rest here till Christ shall come 

Upon all flesh to geve his censure and his doome, 
And then with joifull voice. Lord, call him unto Thee, 

Where he maie ever dwell with them that blessed be.

^ George, first Lord Darcy of Aston 
(son of Lord Darcy, beheaded for his 
share in the Pilgrimage of Grace), was 
restored in blood. This splendid tomb 
yet remains. Hunter says the latter years 
of his life were clouded by the misconduct 
of his younger son George, who slew his 
neighbour, Lewis West, and that perhaps 
it was on that account he was buried at 
Bray ton, instead of at Aston, close to his 

2 Son of John Twisleton, citizen and 
alderman of London. His will is at York, 
17 January, 1578-9, proved I2 February, 

1579-80. His grandson appeared at the 
1612 Visitation. 

3 The manor of Badsworth belonged 
to the family of Longvillers, then by 
marriage of the heiress Margaret to 
Geoffrey de Nevile. They had a daugh- 
ter Johanna, who married William de 
Hertforth, and had the manor from her 
mother. Her descendant Joan married 
Thomas Urswick, who in her right be- 
came lord. Their granddaughter Isabel, 
circa 36 Henry VI, married William 
Vavasor, but died issueless. The manor 
however remained with the Vavasors till

Ther is in the East end of the towne an old house of stone 
called Wyvill Hall. 

The tradition is thai betwixt Malton and this towne ther was 
sometytnes a serpent that lyved upon pray of passengers, which this 
Wyvill and dogg did kill, wher he received his deathe's wound. Ther 
is a great hole half a myle from the towne, round within and 3

Quid valet hie fortis? sapiens? quid doctus et ille?

^ This monument, which Dodsworth 
does not describe, is probably that which 
is now in the church, and engraved in 
Poulson's Holderness^ i, 210. He says: — 
*' It is an ahar tomb to the memory of 
Sir Martin de la Sec, knight, who was 
lord of this place, and died in 1494. On 
the slab is the recumbent figure of a 
knight in plate armour, his hands are 

joined in prayer, his feet rest on a lyon, 
and his head on a helmet. The entire 
monument is of alabaster, and in excellent 
preservation." Sir Martin made his will 
20 November, proved 15 December, 1494. 
His daughter, Matilda, married Henry 
Boynton, of Acklam, and carried the 
Barnston estates into his family. 

* Sir Francis Boynton was High Sheriff 
1596. Will 27 May, 1614, proved 29 
May, 161 7. Married Dorothy, daughter 
of Sir Christopher Place.

Nee cessent querulos tympana rauca modos.

Man's life a warfare is, wher man must fight 

To gain the honor of a Christian knight. 

Thou wast a soldier in a double sence. 

For which thou hast a double recompence.

In honor of thy king and countrie's good. 

Thou hast atchiv'd true fame as thy due merit, 

Who, Josuah-like, mad'st knowne thy martiall spirit 

For thy spirituall fight, thou hast Heavnn's crowne 

Having with Paul performed itt with renowne. 

Spending thy dayes of peace to thy soule's health, 

Hurtfull to none, good to thy common wealth. 

And now thy corps in grave doth sleep in rest, 

Till soule and body shall with Christ be blest.

Mr. George Sandys, in his travailes, maketh mention of a place, 
fyve myles from Cairo in Egypt, called Matarea, where they say that 
Our Saviour and the blessed Virgin, with Joseph, reposed themselves 
as they fledd from the fury of Herod, in which place ther is a small 
chapell, in a wall wherof ther is a little concave lined with sweet 
wood and smoked with incense; in the sole a stone of porphyr, 
wheron (they say) she did set Our Saviour. Nere y* chappell ther 
is an orchard, in a corner wherof standeth an overgrowne figgtree, 
which opened (as they report) to receive Our Saviour and his mother, 
then hardly escaping the pursuers, closing up againe till the pursuite 
was past : then againe devid[/«^], as now itt remayneth. A large 

hole ther is through one of the sides of the [ f] bulke. This, 

they say, no bastard^ [ ^], but shall sticke fast by the midle.

The care of this work so beautiful! and faire, 

Was put to John Topham, clerk, by the late lord mayor 

Of that most famous cytty of London so bright, 

By Sir William Craven, that bountifuU knight, 

Borne in this parishe in Appl[e]trewyk towne. 

Who r^arded no cost, so the worke were well done. 

The forenamed Sir William Craven did cause all the church and 
chancel to be furnished with stalles and seates of waynscote. He 
made a cawsey from Appletrewike to the church. He builded 4 
bridges in this parish, one over Wherfe att Burnsall, a very faire one, 
one which is engraven with this inscription : 

This bridge was builded att the only coste and chardges of Sir 
William Craven, knight, alderman of the cytty of London, anno 
Domini 1609. 

Another over a brok called Barban, of stone, one at Skirram, 

of wood, one at Holgill, stone, and 
repaired Dibbles Bridge, and gave x/. 
a yere for ever to mayntenance of 
such things as he had made. He like- 
wise new builded the church of Burn- 
sall, as this inscription in stone of [«V] 
the porch testifieth : 

This church was repaired and new 
builded att the only costes and charges 
of Sir WilHam Craven, knight, and 
alderman of the cyttye of London, and 
late lord maior of the same, anno Domini 



He likewise walled the church yard, as this inscription over the 
gate evidenceth : 

This church yard was newly made 
and walled, gaites and all, att the only 
costes and charges of Sir William Craven, 
knight, and alderman of the cytty of 
London, and late lord maior of the same, 
anno Domini 161 2. 

He likewise founded a free schoole 
nere unto the church, over the dore 
wherof are thes wordes : 

William Craven, alderman of the 
cytty of London, founded this schoole 
anno Domini 1602. 

He gave 120/. a yere to the master 
and 10/, to the usher.

^ This appears to be the escutcheon of

Nicholas Tempest and Beatrix, daughter 
of John Bradford, of Heath. He was 
living at the Visitation of 1585, and 
married, about 1563, Anne, daughter of 
Bartholomew Pigott. 

2 There seems some difficulty about the 
quartering. Dodsworth calls it Thorp, 
but the arms are the same as Gilliott 
quartered by Tempest, of Broughton, 
according to Glover. 

3 The quarterings 3 and 5 were brought 
in by the marriage of Sir Piers Tempest 
to Grace Hebden, heiress, of Rye. 

* Sir Richard, of Bracewell, married 
Rosamond, daughter of Tristram Boiling, 
of Boiling. 

^ Nicholas, father of Robert, married 
Beatrix Bradford. She was buried at 
Dewsbury 8 December, 1550. 

^ The account given by Dodsworth of 
the shields in Selby Church is rather 
poor. Mr. Mill Stephenson has pointed 
out that a much fuller list, of which he 
took a copy, is given in a volume by Sir 
W. Dugdale, in the possession of the 
Earl of Winchilsea and Nottingham, 
exhibited at the Society of Antiquaries 
in 1890. It is therefore thought worth 
while to add this account. Mr. Stephen- 
son has greatly assisted the editor in 
endeavouring to identify the various 
arms. Those marked with an asterisk 
seem to be at present in existence.
